Two Meditations From The Upanishads Plus Two From The Bhagavad Gita

Lead me from the unreal to the Real. -- Upanishads.

Remove the veil of ignorance from before me. that I may behold thy light...  --  Upanishads

But when you move amidst the world of sense
from both attachment and aversion freed,
there comes the peace in which all sorrows end,
and you live in the wisdom of the Self. -- Bhagavad Gita

He is forever free who has broken out
of the ego-cage of I and mine
to be united with the Lord of Love. -- Bhagavad Gita.

(All translations were by Eknath Easwaran in God Makes  The Rivers To Flow.)
